Wow, I'm going to London in December. With a good friend I made plans to visit the Henry Moore exihibition at Kew gardens (hope the wheather is reasonable) and the plans are final now. It's only two days, but it's so special.
The other reason to visit London now is the couture exhibition in the Victoria and Albert museum.
So looking forward to this.
The sewing of my shirt gave me a headache and a very low sewing spirit. On Pattern review there was only 1 review of this BWOF shirt by Sew-4-fun. She mentioned the great amount of sleeve-ease. But I was stubborn and didn't change it. Lesson learned: listen to reviewers with more experience than myself.
I did manage to get the sleeve in without puckers, but in the end there was too much fabric in the front, giving a strange "puff". Yesterday evening I took out both sleeves. They were already topstitched, but it only took me a little over an hour to take them out, take a bit off the top and sew again. Much better.
Then I took off the (second) collar and made a third one. This one still has to be finished, but looks more promising then the other two. And I thought a shirt like this would be ready in one weekend!
